Today, during a stage event at Tokyo Game Show 2019, Koei Tecmo revealed a new batch of new and returning characters for its upcoming Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate.
We get Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, Achilles from Warriors: Legend of Troy, and the brand new Olympian god Hades.
This means that theoretically there is only one character left to be unveiled these add to Gaia and returning heroine Joan of Arc from Bladestorm, who were revealed a little while ago.
Together with the announcement came the first full-fledged trailer showing the new (and old) heroes in action.
Incidentally, we also see a special outfit for Gaia in the gallery at the bottom of the post.
